Edison suprises No. 78 Carol City in South Florida

Carol City high school football

Despite its 3-4 record, Carol City has held its spot inside the High School Football America 100 national rankings, because of its very tough schedule. However, neither the No. 78 ranking or the fact that it was an underdog to the Chiefs made a difference scared Miami’s Edison High School Thursday night.

The Red Raiders, coached by former 2 LIVE Crew rapper Luther Campbell, beat nationally-ranked Carol City 7-6 at Traz Powell Stadium.

Edison’s game-winning score came near the end of the first half when Zachery Baldwin had a 40-yard Pick-6 giving the Red Raiders a 7-6 lead held until the final horn sounded.
